Hello Ashley Yuan and Thank you and your team for your efforts on creating the Liferay Development IDE.

I noticed that when working with the 3.9.0 version I often only get this import in my build.gradle: compileOnly group: "com.liferay.portal", name: "release.portal.api"The result is sadly that many errors appear in my IDE.

Is this related to this new IDE version or a 7.3.5 GA6 problem?

Keep up the good work!



i experience the same problems described at

The problem occurs when using the single dependency

compileOnly group: "com.liferay.portal" , name: "release.portal.api"

and running gradle with Java 11 (tried Oracle and Zulu-variants). On every import refering to this import it tells me "'The type [XXX] is not accessible'.

Running "Refresh Gradle Project" with Java 8 resolves the errors, running it again with Java 11 lets them reoccur.

Building and deploying modules works without problems, but using the DevStudio (actually using 3.9.0 GA1, but problem occured in earlier versions too) is nearly impossible running gradle with Java11 and the "release.portal.api" dependency.

Any ideas how to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance
